After yesterday's 19-14 nailbiter the New Orleans fans who were confused why Bush was a 1st rounder, are now seeing why the Saints picked Reggie Bush
after a stellar regular season debut wearing the #25 jersey with about 4.36 yards per carry, 7.25 yard per catch and 7.33 yards per punt return. And
what a debut for former Chargers QB Drew Brees made 17 of 31 for 176 yards and only one pick. But the defense is definitely becoming a threat holding
the Browns to 56 yards (or a little over half the field) in the first half. John Carney also having a stellar day going four for four including the
clincher with 5:42 to go. all that and theywon without having a fullback for the majority of the game
The Saints have always had the chance to become contenders. The last few years with McAllister at RB, Joe Horn at WR, and Brooks at QB, they've
always had the potential to be a contender. It's actually a dissapointment that they weren't contenders the last few years.
With that same team and Bush, then they'd be even better contenders... but I don't know about this year. Maybe next year.
That's after one game, so it's entirely meaningless. Also, they played the Browns! Please, New Orleans is setting a foundation, but it's not
happening this season, and certainly not with the Saints in that division. I'll give Bush credit, he did well--not "stellar", though. Fairly good
numbers against the doormat Browns. Saints go 7-9 this season.
Its still what many people like to say as a re-building year, its going to take at least one or two more solid choice in the off-season before we can
really consider the Saints as true contenders. They have great weapons on the offensive part, and will put up some big numbers. But can Bush sustain
under the new pace and contact in the NFL vs College.
